Currently there is a 2 season extension at the back of the house. We would like to take it down and rebuild a 4 season extension that will extend the kitchen with a door to the backyard and garage. The existing extension is 18X8. We are also looking to build a tunnel between the new extension and the garage if feasible.
We live in a two-storey house built in 1916. Wood covered in stucco/aggregate. Stone foundation in good condition. Large unfinished attic. We would like to build a two-storey extension onto the back of the house. Approximate foundation dimensions 14x30. The attic of the new addition is also to be finished into a small library. The addition will not have a full/finished basement-only a 5-6 foot foundation and crawlspace. One section of the existing foundation will need to be cut to accomadate a new staircase leading to the basement. There is some structural work to be the project. The house is not square-the back of the house is narrower and will be widened to 30 feet. As a result, the two side walls and back wall of the house (which are supporting walls to the second floor) will need to be removed. The plans have already been approved by a structural engineer with all information available regarding the location and size of supporting beams etc. With respect to the interior of the project, this will include a new kitchen, new bedroom, living room and two new bathrooms.
We were initially planning on starting this project in August The contractor who gave us a price quote, doubled his quote just prior to starting the job. He was told to leave. We are looking for a reasonable, honest and reliable contractor to do this work either this fall or next spring.
Thanks for your attention.
I have a non finish construction of an extension for a daycare. Unfortunately the contractor went out of business without finishing my project and I am now looking for someone that can finish the job properly and as fast as possible.
The extension was supposed to be finish on February.
I have the construction permit and transformation from the Ville, therefore I just need someone to finish the job.
Please let me know
Currently, I have crawl space about 4 to 5 feet high, and attached both sides. I would like to dig to a fully basement, move the main pipe to proper position. Also, the solid foundation is requested for extension. Furthermore, completed renovation for my house is desired. Engineering service is required as well.
Main job in this project is to demolish existing roof on 28' X 35' bungalow and to build new roof that will allow to have 3 bedrooms+bathroom in the attic.Also existing main floor has to be remodeled including replacement of 4 windows + 2 exterior doors.Concrete front deck will be added and front elevation changed.
We just purchased a new property in Montreal and wanted to build an addition before moving in. The work must begin by November 15.
On the ground floor: extension of the kitchen of 7'6 by 12'5, adding a pantry area behind the garage of 11'4 by 6'6.
On the second floor build an addition on top of the garage and pantry of 10'11 by 27'6 which will include a bathroom, a bedroom and a closed.
Please provide the estimate for the addition costs only (excluding finishing) and also how long it would take to be completed.
We want to build an addition at a townhouse in Ville-marie:
- ground and second floor
- 200 sqft per floor
- ground floor is a living room area (no plumbing required)
- second floor is one bedroom and a full-bath
- outside finish in bricks
- 3 windows on the top floor and 3 sliding doors on the bottom floor
our house was built in 1949, it is a detached cottage, flat roof, modern design, 600 sq feet per floor (2 floors plus basement) on 5600 sq foot lot. we want to expand kitchen, add powder room, expand dining and living room on main floor as well as master bedroom with ensuite on top floor...we want to respect original style as much as possible (exterior stucco which needs refacing) with as many green materials as possible...we have tight budget (max 150 000$) is this possible! thanx
Home is 32 x 40 bungalow, want to extend back of main floor by 7 to 14 feet (depending of cost) the whole back width which is 32 feet, there is a balcony under this area of 7 by 21 feet, the underside of additional extension could be either pillars or foundation....extension walls would be brick and windows....kitchen and flooring would have to be done afterwards.
our house was built in 1949 (stucco and brick exterior). we have preciously changed all plumbing, most of electrical, added a small powder room in basement, changed all windows (10 yrs ago), renovated upstairs bathroom and changed kitchen cabinets.
we are thinking of an extension that would include a new kitchen, living room and powder room on main floor, a master bedroom with ensuite on upper floor and connecting 2 small bedrooms upstairs (all floors need to be replaced) and possibly a family room above the garage , a new garage with storage space behind, and a new deck. If all this is affordable we would like to go ahead this spring! We do not need fancy finishings but like good quality materials and eco friendly as much as possible, we insist on hardwood floors (no carpet,floating floors for us!), our kitchen for example should be very simple and open concept...
The house was built in 1956, a very solid but old fashion house. Near back yard side, there is kitchen and a bedroom. I would like to extend my home from this side toward the back yard. The width of the extention part will be about 8.5 meters and the length will be about 2-3 meters depending on the technical fitures (to be discussed). The extention will be built using wood and brick. I would like to have several big glass windows for the nice view and sunlight to come in. Roof will be shingle.
Please give a quote for this project. Please advise if this project can be done in winter season.
Looking to almost double the house. Existing is two story, three bedroom, almost perfect square footprint, bottom half brick.
Want to add 2 door garage, with master suite above including master bathroom, walk-in closet and backyard 2nd story patio, almost same footprint as existing house.
Want to price out now, plan to do in next 3-5 years. Rough estimate is ok considering the time frame.
Postal: H9R 1W5
My house currently has an extension on the first floor only. The extension measures 12 feet wide (along the back of the house) by 17.5 feet long (the neighbour wall is on one side of of this length). Behind the extension is my garage which measures 15.5 feet wide.
I would like to build 3 more floors on top of the current extension (the house is 3 floors and the extension would be 4 floors with the top floor being a mezamine).
This extension would measure 15.5 feet wide by 17.5 feet long. The extension will over hang above the first floor by 3.5 feet.
The extension will be 815 square feet total (exterior dimensions).
I need a price to frame this extension, insulate, build a roof, and put 9 windows, 2 patio doors, and aluminum siding on it. The interior can be left without gyspe, electricity, and finishings. Only a plumbing stack will need to be installed for the drains and the roof drain.
We want to build an addition out from our front door. A mud room. Approximately 6 feet by 6 feet. This would involve extending an existing overhang that starts at the front corner of the house, that juts out about 6 feet, back to the front door of the addition. We would have 1 concrete step up to the addition. Outer materials for the mud room: Brick (to be re-used from one side of the current front door) for outer corner column to left of new front door, Maibec treated wood siding for back and outer side wall, windows (tall narrow window right side of new front door, long horizontal high-up window outer side wall of mud room), Crewview-style front door. We would add one Home Depot baseboard heater under the horizontal window, wiring extending from a heater near current entrance. Extend the wiring from our current front door outdoor lights. Extend the wiring from our current doorbell. Materials inside the mud room: drywall, hexagon floor tiling (simple design from Home Depot), built-in closet space for ready-made IKEA closet on back wall. Keep current front door as is.
Age of house: 1952
Made of brick
We need to draw up a design tand list of costs to get approval for a permit
We would like to start work fairly soon
We are looking to expand our workshop by adding a "control room" to it. We would do this by adding two ~4-5 meter long walls to the corner of our concrete-floored workshop. I am picturing a standard 2X4 construction, with 1 door, and electricity. The one particularity is that for protection reasons, we would like to have steel plating on one wall for operator safety.
We have just bought a 1973 "Canadienne" style bungalow in Saint-Lambert (QC) that has never been renovated. We are seriously considering adding an addition before redoing the kitchen / dining area.
The house measures 47x26 (including a 13' wide garage) so it is relatively shallow. The addition could be more or less 16x8, enough to accommodate a larger kitchen and breakfast nook and or reconfigure the dining room.
Would like to have an idea of costs to ajust expectations. Because the house also needs other mechanical work (heating, electric) on top of cosmetic improvements. Total budget TBD
